I had another appt today, and we heard the heartbeat with the Doppler! I was a little worried since I have some extra "padding" on my belly and I'm about 11 1/2 weeks. I kept reading places that sometimes it takes til 12-14 weeks to hear it, but the nurse found it! 164bpm! It was so neat hearing it again!
I also had a pap, which I was NOT expecting. And...my OB got called to a delivery at the last minute so I had to have the pap done by another OB there, but it wasn't too bad, except for the fact that I was naked from the waist down in front of a complete stranger...hahaha!
She also checked my cervix and said its exactly how it should be, so all in all it was a good appt. I go back on June 16th (which happens to be my birthday!), for an ultrasound. I will be nearly 16 weeks so maybe we can find out the gender?!
Yay! glad you had a good appt! You *should* be able to find out the gender at your next appt, if the babe cooperates. And about the naked thing--might as well get used to it - by the end of this journey you will have no modesty left! lol Glad everything went well!

I would love a girl just because I love all the typical girly stuff like bows and frills and ribbons, but really, I will be overjoyed with either! And, my husband os the only male in his family to carry on his last name, so having a boy would be great too.
Yay Great appt besides the surprise pap. Can you believe how fast this is going already!
